 Provincial Library,  Victoria, b. C.  Printed and Published at Gibsons, B.C.  10c per copy  Volume 27 Number 17, April 24, 1974.  Win 1st  Gibsons Rugby Club won  first place and the cup in the  Vancouvier Rugby League  Fourth Division this year. The  club members thank all for  their enthusiastic support  through the whole season.  This Saturday at 111 a.m., the  team will play the Port Mellon Men's Soccer club at Gibsons Elementary school.  Gibsons Rugby Club travelled to iSeattle on Easter weekend to play in a rugby tournament. They played' four games  and came in dS-th out of 34  teams from the U.S. and Canada.  'Don Lockstead, MLA, announces that the provincial  highways department has an  allocation of $500,000 to spend  this year on the first phase of  a new Sunshine Coast highway. The first phase will be  from the Langdale ferry terminus to��� it is understood,  Park Road, where it will join  the highway.  With the elimination of the  S-turn at the Sunshine* Coast  Mobile Home Park, traffic  should have greater ease in  moving along a straightened  highway, he said.  .Mr.'Lockstead also said, there,  would-be .about $500ifl00j>spent.  on highway paving front Port  Mellon to Gibsons and another  $500,000 in the Halfmoon Bay-  Redfopffs area. There will also  be work on the local roads in  the^ various areas. '  Anker heads  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department 28 unpaid members  are willing to work their  hearts out to protect the * area  against fire ��� but if they have  insufficient water there is  nothing thyy can do.  This Fire Chief Dick Ranniger told the April meeting of  Gibsons Voters Association in  the Elementary school library  where some 40 persons learned hoiw the fire department  operated.  He said they have no trouble  in recruiting members. There  were some applicants who have  been waiting: tiwp or three  years. Applications are con-;  sidered first on the basisv of  availability within the hearing  of the siren. After a probationary period the firemen vote  on their acceptability.  Firemen meet each Monday  night for discussion or practice. Because the department is  under two authorities, the Regional District board and Gibsons Council, it has a split  budget on which to work, 51%  from the Regional board and  49% from council. The budget  these days is in the $.14,000  range. The department now  covers the West Howe Sound  area from Seaview Cemetery  to  Langdale  as well as  Gibsons village.  Fire experience was outlined  by the chief twho said the  $iy20O,000 Elphinstone fire cost  the fire department $6,600 in  damage  to   truck   equipment.  Questions were asked about  the firemen losing their employment pay when fighting  fires. Chief Ranniger, said this  was so but negotiations were  now in progress which might  help a bit.  Water discussion revealed  that pressure up top, of the bill  was abo_t 30 libs, while at the  bottom level it was iOOlbs.  Chief Ranniger felt he could  use a little more capital budget as hose was now costing  $2 per foot and a fire can cause  damage to up to 300 feet a fire  Public fire insurance is base^.  on the kind of fire equipment  and service a lire department  is capable-of supplyig, he explained.  Members of. the audience  were impressed with the quality of Gibsons fire department  and suggested that possibly, a  fund could be set Up wftiicth  would reimburse firemen for  lost work pay. It was argued  that the public pays for every  other kind of service so why  not,the firemen's service.^  Rink must be open to all]  ,*  Lionel Anker will be Gibsons 1974-75 Kinsmen club  president and Ray Machon,  vice-president. Rick Wray was  elected secretairy and Barry  Procknow, treasurer. Rick  Hughes will be the registrar  and Clay Carby, Ken Morrison'  and Ron Service, directors.  These Kinsmen officials will  continue the Kinsmen drive for  a swimming pool for Gibsons  area. Talks are now being conducted with school board and  Gibsons municipal officials  working towards a location for  the pool.  Promoters of the Sechelt  Recreation building to be used  as a curling, skating and hockey rink have been informed  by the provincial attorney-  general's department that there  will be n& restriction on people desiring to use the premises...  '  The Tfbllowing notification  was read to Sechelt's council  at its meeting last week b\yj  Clerk Neil Sutherland:      {  "The Corporation of the Village of Sechelt guarantees that  the facility will be available to  any person or person.) who  wish to use, it in accordance  with,the purpose of the facility and that participation and  membership fees will not be a  discriminating factor in the use  of the facility. This clause being unalterable.'!  Council also considered a request from the Nimpkish Construction company/ rink builders, requesting a progress pay-v  ment of $83,200, p|t>bably $14,-  600 less as a council holdback.  Council decided! with A Aid.  Watson, and Aid. Booth moving  and seconding a motion which  carried, that the Recreation association * be requested to turn  oyer to the village all funds,  now in hand in order ihaf a  payment may be made to  Nimpkish  Construction  Co.  It was also moved! fey Aid.  Watson and seconded by Aid  Booth that the lease with the  Recreation association covering the operation of the arena. >  be signed.  TV schedules will be back  to normal Sunday, if you remember to change your clock  one hour ahead Saturday night  before you go to bed. Youll  also arrive at church on time.  Rent control  ,     ������. ���   ^ ���' ...���-. ���  not for Gibsons  Gibsons council has no desire to take on the matter of  rent controls because it would  be unable to police them, council decided1 at Tuesday night's  meeting.  The issue came to council  via a letter from Mrs. Alicfe  Roberts, Marine Drive, who  hoped that Gibsons council, in  view) of its sewer and water  rate increases, would not impose rent control.  Ewart McMynn, realtor, by  letter wished there was something he could do to help council with its dog control situation. He maintained some actions by dog owners were nauseating and 'disgusting and asked "how do we approach this  type of dog owner?"  John Hind-Smith in his  search for-a method of obtaining a trailer holding tank  dumpimg station intimated two  possible ways, a tank at the  Prowse road launching ramp  br.the use of the village sew-  ^j^.tm-a^eat :j^Bt; Hfe.pointa  bT'view will he tkken under  , consideration.

Applicants for it were S. P.  and M. O. Martinson and R.  W. and D. M. Facco Council  said the land was an industrial  site and was of the opinion re-,  zoning would be necessary.  The applicants plan a two  year lease with the hall opened Fridays and Saturdays from  9 to 1 a.m. A liquor license &  being sought. Aid. KW. Booth  and N. Watson stressed the  need for parking facilities. As  information about it was incomplete council tabled: it for  the May 1 meeting.  A community centre is a  definite need for Gibsons area  andi its cost would be more of  an investment in the future,  Michael YPoppel told Gibsons  Voters Association at its April  meeting Thursday night last  week in Gibsons Elemenary  school. .  He informed the 40 present  that he. has approached the  various clubs in the area and  they are supporting his idea  for a community centre.  iThere were something like  22 grants available under federal and provincial loans and  a certain amount of forgiveness of payment available in  government loans. These loans  could be obtained just as soon  as the community pulled together as a unit and started getting something done.  The area would consist of  .Port Mellon,, Langdale, Hopkins, Granthams, Gibsons and  Roberts Creek and he visualized that area by 1980 as hous-  ihg a population which cquld  approach the ,. 25,000 figure.  They would all be paying for  the community centre, he ad  ded.  Looking into the future, Mr.  Poppel thought that with financing of a million dollars divided between two governments and the public, the financial burden would not be too  heavy on the taxpayer.  Some taxpayers maintained  during questions and answers  that taxes were now too high,  going higher, and that further  taxation would be a burden to  them: It was pointed out that  Premier Barrett was planning  to remove school taxes from  municipal taxation and increase the homeowner grant  which created quite low taxation for most householders.  _mimiratt��wm��miin��mmnuiunraiffiin��mm\raiinwiM��  TOP  HONORS  FOR JUNE  June    Mandelkau    received '  top honors in her Silver Medal  The transportationmini-bus  drive j reached the half way  point this week.

Municipal councils and Regional boards have been asked  by Minister of Labor W.S.  King to set up boards of inquiry under the new Human  Rights Code of British Columbia.  So far Gibsons has complied  and a committee has been nam  ed by Aid. Winston Robinson  Who reported to council that  on April'3 he had instructed  the council clerk to send Don  Lockstead MLA the names of  the following persons who had  expressed an interest in serving on a board of inquiry!:  Chris Beacon, Don Pearsall,  Kenneth Barker, If ene Glassford' and Trene Puchalski.     N  Mr. Lockstead in his letter  to council asked that the information in Minister Kings'  request be made known so  that people who are interested'  may come forward for this  very important position.  Sechelt's council still has to  deal with it. The Regional District board decided at its  March meeting to refer the  matter to its service committee for consideration and re-"  ply. .... .'  .  To supply background' information on this move, the in-"  formation supplied by the minister follows:  Human   Resources  Minister  Norman  Levi   introduced  the'  Community Resources rAct on'  -Marc_~_0.~lt _^__.rtoie_ta!blish .  regional" ahd   community   resources boards in B.C., to allow    for    increased    decision  making at local levels.  .  'As   a. government,   we   see  our role as helping things happen within communities,' said  Levi; Tt is not our desire to  control at all. The function of  the Provincial Government in  this process is to set the parameters of policy and of budgets, but the decision.malting  process on programs must be  in the community.'  ,��� This legislation outlines the  following functions:  Regional boards will serve  as umbrella groups to local  community resources boards..  Regional boards will assume  administrative duties, encourage public participation and  involvement, and make recommendations to the minister regarding the financing of  services.   .  Challenge!  A fire department challenge  from Roberts Creek iwas turned in at the Coast News office.  It reads:  "I, the Fire Chief of the Roberts Creek Volunteer Fire De-  we have the bloodiest fire department, do hereby state that  partment on the Sunshine  Coast.  "I hereby challenge my  neighboring departments, Gibsons, Sechelt and Pender Harbour, all being aneWc old women, to prove that I'm wrong  at the forthcoming blood donors clinic, April 29 and May 2.  "If my challenge is accepted, and I am proven wrong, I  will personally buy each department a 26 ounce of Canada's best. ��� Glen Kraus."  BLOOD CLINIC TIMES  Times for Gibsons blood  clinic at the Health Centre,  May 2, published last week will  be changed to 2:30 to 5 p_n.  and from 6:30 to 8:30 pan.  Previously published times  were from 4:30 to 8:30.  Approximately 30 communities in British Columibia are  already establishing local community resources boards. Community boards will.be composed of elected members of  the community whc- will serve  two-year terms.  They will be responsible for  integrating service at a local  level and encouraging public  participation in establishing  service priorities.  The legislation ensures job  security for public servants  who are affected by integration of services.  There is also provision in  the legislation for other services such as public health  services, correctional services  education or employment services which could be delegated, by the appropriate minisY  ter to a regional or community  resources board.  Hon. W.S. King, minister of  labor, has announced steps  have been taken towards setting up boards of inquiry under the new Human Rights  Code of British Coltunbia.  'I have written tp coininun-  . ity organizations interested in  the.area of human rights to hv  vite them to submit names of  persons for /boards of inquiry  under' the code. The responsibilities and powers of 'boards of  inquiry are very serious.

Who will be boss?  With election talk running its usual course in Ottawa, the possibility of Prime Minister Trudeau springing an election on the theme "who is running the country" might not be a too unlikely theme.  Striking unions deciding to flout authority make it  appear it is time for any government, left, centre or right  to find out how the voting public feels about the situation.  Liberal governments have been known to throw the  baE at the opposition to let it have a whack at the problem. If this should happen one can hope that those in opposition will be able to back up their claims to success  they have been striving to sell to parliament.  During World War Two when the Wartime Prices  Board ruled the economy there was a saying that the  board spent $50,000,000 a year to avoid $500,000,000 in inflation.  For several years the government has been spending more than $50,000,000 a year in striving to stem in-  ilation but what have we got? We have spent much more  than $50,000,000 a year and still have a continuous rise in  inflation which does not appear to be under very much  government control ��� except for the money being spent.  Given a chance the public would like to help the government. We survived controls in the 1940s and can survive  them now.  Municipal featherbedding  Featherbedding, an old labor union custom, creates  more jobs than is necessary because of clauses in an  agreement. Fe^atherbedders do not add to the productivir  ty of a plant.  It seems strange that featherbedding should hit the  Regional District board. The Regional Board chairman  at the first meeting of the year selects members to7serve  on the various committees, naming one of them committee chairman. There are nine committees this year if or  eight members on the board.  Board members attend about 50 or more meetings  la year for which they receive $25 per committee or statutory meeting. A breakdown of the composition of the  committees reveals there are three members on six committees and five on five committees.  Not all committees meet the saline number of times.  Some may meet once every three months and others  twice a month. Planning and water committees meet  oftenest.  The featherbedding angle comes as the result of a  motion passed at the special April 11 meeting called specifically for passage of the water rates by-law.  The situation which resulted in the passage of a  motion for all directors attending committee meetings  >to be paid, the meeting stipend of $25 was passed by a  four to two vote with two members not voting. One was  the chairman who votes only in case of a tie and the  other was unable to be present.  If this situation is allowed to continue the selection  of directors to the various committees at the beginning  of the year is a waste of time. Two members of the board,  former employees, insist they should have the right to attend -all committee meetings and be paid for attendance  regardless of whether they are members of that committee. They can attend, say nothing, merely observe, and  be paid for so doing.  There is the possibility this action may come before  the board for further consideration.  5 to 25 years ago  The United Church charge  decides to call Rev. Jim Williamson as minister replacing  Rev. W.M. Cameron, retired.  'Sechelt's council decides on  a 14 mill tax rate and using up  surplus funds, instead of a  higher tax rate.

(By ED THOMSON)  The Moxons, Henry and  Isabel have just completed  their first year at the top of  Central Ave., Gibsons, proud  of the wonders they have accomplished inside and out of  their comfortable hillside  home... .the carefully laid  out garden, bushes, hedges,  raspberry canes with more  flowers and vegetables to  come from the hot frames.  What you don't see at first  glance, is the extent of Henry's involvement in model ���  railroading which takes up the  entire space of the guest house  ait the rear. Here, one can only  just squeeze through the door  to enter a whole new and fascinating world of 210 ft. of  H.O. gauge, mainline track  including completely equipped  yards and sidings with its  maze of inter-crossing tracks.  Henry's system includes at  least 25 miniature locomotives  of various types and vintages,  from the proud C.P.R. Royal  Hudson's heavy class passenger engines which hauled1  Their Majesties on the '39  Trans Canada Royal Visit, to  19,th century English narrow  gauge puffers, all in perfect  H.O. gauge and fully operative  This, along with more than  200   pieces   of   accompanying  rolling stock, much of it painstakingly   hand-made;   everything    from    passenger    and  freight  cars,  reefers,   tankers,  even to home-built mountain,  division observation cars and  1920 vintage scale built work  cars. Every piece ready to take  to the road at the turn of the  master  control switch   which  sets   in   motion   the   complex  operation of this model railroad.  The prize of Moxon's collection is a slightly larger  model of a C.P.R. yiard engine,  every piece hand-made "arid  turned according to the railroads blueprints. This workhorse of the system, a l/16th,  gauge capable of carrying ten  normal size passengers on#a  level SVz" gauge straight-a-  way track. When he gets a-  round to it, Henry hopes to  lay a length of track around  the yard and with addition of  several cars, prove the working qualities of this old steam-  yarder; the prototype of which  could ibe. found shunting cars  about the nation's railroad  yards from 1900 until the advent of the diesel in the early  50'Si Mounted on trestles, running around all sides of the  room, the system is gradually  taking shape and Henry figures (that with the aid of an  enthusiastic assistant the road  should be in action later on  this year.  Meantime there are cartons  and boxes of yet-unopened  equipment, model railroat?  stations, freight sheds, water  tanks, bridges, . viaducts, not  forgetting the painted panorama to surround the area.  ' Moxon came by his love of  railroading in the most natural way, and although he  ^ never actually pulled a throt-  . tie, the. blood of railroading  was deep in his veins handed  dawtn from his grandfathers  in England, both old time railroaders, where he was born in  Portsmouth.  As a lad of four he first got  the feel of trains when he received his first model steam  engine, but it was not until  12 years ago that the bug real-  , ly hit him. Now retired in Gib  sons after 42 years with the  Canadian General Electric Co.,  he feels the urge as strong as  ever to make a retirement  hobby of model railroading. In  this, Henry maintains the invention of the steam locomo-  - tive is the only thing created  by man which shares the gift  of life.  He    recalls    two    instances  from his own life which brings  the haunting sound of the railroad  to   mind.   One occasion,  when dozing off to sleep after  a hard day's \work in Regina,  came  the  strident -whistle of  an engine on the Trans Canada run demanding clear track,  the Highball as it poised for  the next leg of the prairie run  to the mountains of the West.  He   also   remembers   waiting  for the local at Swan River,  Manitoba on a chilly 45 below  night when the vibrations of  the approaching train could be  felt through the frozen ground  while the train was yet miles  away.  To Henry Moxon and the  many like him, model railroading is the sublimation of  their dreams where in the  mind's eye a hand reaches for  a ghostly throttle, the other  pressing well down on the  whistle lanyard as they hi-  ball through timeless miles  with a clear track all the way.

Volenta is also a member of  Beachcombers! cast and. appears in The Hard Case Skipper "of the Workfboat Swell.  Back in his native land,  Czechoslovakia, a political prisoner, Vladimir served six  years of a ten-year term on a  trumped-up charge of conduct  prejudicial to the good of the  state. Following a series of appeals, his case was finally reviewed and he was released,  free to come to Canada as a  landed immigrant with his wife  Eva and their 11-year-old1  daughter of. tiie same name.  The Volentas reside in Edmonton where Vladimir, among  other interests edits an ethnic  bi-monthly magazine, The  Telegram. He is also a professional movie actor, film maker1  and script writer. Speaking of  his six years as guest of the  Soviet inhibited Czech government, he terms it grim, mod<-  elled much after,German concentration camps.  , He  was  optimistic  concern  ing Canada's eventual place as  a film production centre. From  what he has already observed,  he notes a distinct deviation  from the fast fading American  dream of big show biz, with  huge studios and costly film  production along with its super star pretentions.  With the support and encouragement from such organizations as the Canadian Film  Development Fundi, the age  of independent film making is  hastening the impetus of Canadian low budget films.  _^"V  For your printing phone 886-2622  DISCOVER  the SUNSHINE COAST  through  K.CROSBY  Charles English Ltd.  886-2481 886-2098  ToH Free 687-6445  The Plywood People present  i  ANOTHER  WINDSOR  EXCLUSIVE!

The old  city Jerusalem encloses within its walls the wailing wall,  site of Soloman's Temple, focal point of the Jewish Faith  for 3,000 years, and on this!  mound stands the'Temple of  the Rock, Muslim" shrine to  Muhammed's journey into the  heavens.      ,  From this spot can be seen  Christian holy places such as  the Garden of Gethsemane,  and the Church oif the Holy  , Sepulchre, site of Christ's ordeal on the cross.  Jerusalem has been destroyed and rebuilt many times  through the ages, the scars of  the most recent battle are evident on many of her buildings.  At Haifa, world centre of  the Baha'i faith, they joined  fellow pilgrims from many nations and varying religions and  racial backgrounds, to pray together at the shrines and to  visit the places where Baha' -  u'llah, prophet-founder of the  Baha'i faith, spent 24 years of  his life.  In the Old City of Akka,  ancient Ptolemy of the Egyptians, Jean LVAccre of the Crusaders, and in 1868, when Ba-  - ha'ul'llah was sent here a prisoner, a Turkish Penal Colony,  they visited the cell where he  was kept for two years.  From within these walls he  wrote letters to the kings and  rulers of the world calling on  them to establish world peace.  Although his call was rejected,  it was in Bahji, a bautiful  mansion noTth of Akka, which  became his final home and  resting place that he told Orientalist Professor E. G.  Browne of Cambridge, "these  fruitless strifes, these ruinous  wars shall pass sway, ahd the  most great peace shall come."  ODD FELLOWS RAFFLE  The Independent Order of  Odd Fellows No. 76 raffle ,  Thurs. April 18 resulted in  Ruth Emerson of Gibsons win-.  ning first prize, a side of beef;  Dick Fitchett, Gibsons second,  a hind quarter and third G.  Arthur, Gibsons, a front quarter. 7 ~ , .   Editor: Apparently April 11  '   1974 was Be Kind to Regional  Directors Day.     . .__  That after; all was the date  a special meeting was called, ���  rather quietly it would seem^  and our, directors kindly voted  themselves $25.00 of our money for every committee meeting they attend, or care to sit  in on, x shall We say, whethiei:  they are members of that committee or not.  This not only could amount  to a nice sum of money each  month but a hefty chunk out  of our Regional budget.  I ani well aware of how  thankless a task serving on  boards or committees or any  other public volunteer function can be but we know thtis  beforehand and we can say no  to taking on the job.  , It is one thing to be paid foir  gas mileage to regular monthly meetings or when sent for  the good of the community on  special assignments but to  make a career out of attending  committee meetings and be  paid is another.  I don't like it at all and no  one should.  ���MEGAN MOORICROFT.  Editor: I was highly incensed by the report in regard! to -  the special meeting of the Regional Board on April 11.  The decision to pay every  member of the Board who attends a committee meeting the  /sum of $25 whether he or she  attends by invitation or not,  is surely taking things a bit  too far. ,  I think few people would  object to !the committee members or someone invited to assist them, being paid for itheir  attendance but ithe way it  stands now, if; I was a member of the Boards I could walk  into any Committee meeting  uninvited and receive $25 plus  ; mileage. ������������?:���.������<���;���.  As a taxpayer I wouid object most strongly to,this and  can see no. jusification for the  Board being able to get away  with it. The taxpayers are  footing the bill arid as such  should have some say in such  mattters.  I think the whole idea is re-  dicu-ous and if this is the way  the municipal act reads, ,which  I doubt, then it should be a-  merided without delay. ���J.  Hind-Smith.  Editor: I would like to state'  publicly, for the benefit of the  council" and anyone else who  might be interested, that I am  one taxpayer who is very unhappy with some of the news  from recent papers.  We are told' in one news  story that the council is  unable to find sufficient money to upgrade the water system, and it is'implied that the  fault lies in the mistakes of  past:councils. But. in 'another  story we are told that a new  bigger, and better museum is  being constructed. Rumor has  it that the school board will  be renting the space presently  occupied by the museum at a  rental which is less than half  the present commercial rate in  Gibsons. "  I realize that the school  board has a problem .to. find  space it can afford, b����rsurely  the taxpayers of Gibsons  should not have to subsidize  the school board at the expense of improvements to our  water system. Our fire chief  has repeatedly urged for these  improvements, and the water  committee chairman has stated that he agrees with the urgency for improvements. Why  then is money spent to construct a new, roomier museum,  with space for municipal archives? IWhy- wasn't that money  used to upgrade the portion of  the water system which the engineers have designated as of  highest priority If there isn't  enough money to do all the  work at once, surely the work  could he done in sections as  the money becomes available:  Members   of   past   councils  have no monopoly on mistakes.  ���LORRAINE GODDARD  Dear Neighbors:  There are now only 44 days  left in our drive for our transportation bus. We are halfway  bo our target of $10,000. I am  appealing to all those citizens  of   the  Sunshine   Coast   who  have not yet donated to this  fund, please  do  so  now. We  have come so far, let's not lose  out now. My fondest dream is.  to   see  that   bus  running up  and down the highway serv-  _. ing the needs of our citizens  who so desperately need it.  During our Tag Day in Sechelt, a man approached me  and enquired about the bus. I  explained all about the drive  and then he said: "I am on a  pension. I haven't got much  money, but I would like to donate a dollar." I wrote the  receipt with a feeling of tremendous humility and a very  deep sense of gratitude. He had  given in the true sense of giving. Remember the patient in  Extended Care who silently  ���put his two dollars in the tin?  They gave 'to help their fellow  man. Cian we do less?  Remember- your donation  stays on the Sunshine Coast to  help our citizens. I have promised you; you will get a bus  or your donation back. Please  don't make me send all those  donations back. Send your dollar, or two, or five, or whatever you can afford, and! let  our friend <who gave all he  could afford know that he did  not give in vain.  -JOHN LEWKS,  Box 562, Sechelt, B.C.

Then, to observe 80 people  of all faiths standing together,  singing Easter hymns and listening to Scripture thait relate  to the great message of the  resurrection, was heart-warming.

In  the  poultry industry,  the  -   term  'broiler' refers to  birds  8 to 10 weeks of age and weigh  ing 2 to 4 pounds. The whole  broiler  usually sells for less  per pound than the parts, but  it is usually more convenient  to buy the exact number of  pieces   needed  for   a   recipe.  This is specially so, if most of  the family prefer dark meat  instead of white, or vice versa.  Buy whole and cut up yourself   for   a   more   economical  meal. It takes only a few minutes longer to prepare.  L Whole chicken broilers are  sold according to grade. The  grade mark is on a metal tag  on the breast or is printed on  the transparent bag  or label  insert. Canada Grade A birds  are most commonly available.  The    ^Canada   Approved'    or  'Canada' health inspection legend on poultry indicates that  the birds are wholesome and  were processed' in federally inspected plants.

Incentive cash to lure new teachers  Funds toffcalling $435,000  have been made available by  the provincial government for  four immediate incentive programs to encourage British  Columbia residents to enter or  re-enter the teaching profession. Hon. Eileen Dailly, minister of education announces.  Reason for the incentive pro  grams is not only that replacement teachers will be required  as usual but also the fact that  teacher-pupil ratio is being reduced. Mrs. Dailly said that in  the process of increasing the  teacher supply the objective  will always be to maintain the  very high standard- of teacher  preparation and performance  that now exist.  The incentive programs are:  1. Grarits of $250 each will  be available to fully-qualified  persons .who have been out of  teaching for several years if  they undertake further education to prepare themselves'  for teaching in September,  1974. The amount allocated is  $75,000.  2. Grants of $250 will be  made to partially trained persons who complete their studies and become fully-qualified  teachers by September. The  sum of $65,000 has been provided.  3. Grants of $500 will be  made available to university  graduates without professional  teacher education who, during the four-month period com  mencing May 1, 1974, undertake the first phase of teacher  training at the University of  British Columbia or the Uni-.

Mrs. Dailly said that in addition   to   the  $36,000,   special  operaiting    grants    would    be  made to the universities to enable them to proceed with the  programs.    In   addition,   substantial increases in operating  grants to the universities announced yesterday should permit them to increase significantly   enrollment   in   regular  teacher    educaition    programs  during the next academic year  ���,   The    Minister    also    stated  that vigorous campaigns would  be conducted to attract available,   fully-qualified   teachers  living in ithe province into full  or part-time teaching in September, to encourage partially-  trained residents to complete  their studies and to encourage  large numbers of students to  enter   the   profession   in   the  years ahead. As a last resort  limited    and    highly-selective  recruitment    of    fully-trained  iteachers will be undertaken in  other provinces where surpluses of teachers are reported.  The decisions on teacher recruiting and incentives were  made after discussions with  the deans of the faculties of  education of the universities,  the BOSTA, the BCTF and department officials, Mrs. Dailly  said. She added that since the  government is committed, to  providing special grants to  school boards, money will be  on hand for boards to pay the  additional .teachers. Details of  the special grants will be announced about April 20.  Persons wishing further information on specific programs  are advised to contact the  Dean of Education of the British Columbia university they  propose to attend.

It is an  exciting and exacting boat to  sail  for it  responds instantly  two sheets of Vi inch PMBC  Exterior      Marine      plywood.  Home construction at low cost  has ensured the Sabot's popularity and thousands have  been built in Canada.

A Sabot  hull  requires only  ���:y\-/  "���'"it  fs% '' >  ,,v'Yy  > ��������# ' &,  the fir plywood Sabot can be  cartopped to water's edge, a  feature summer campers appreciate. She can be used, without rigging, as a dinghy, will  hold! two men and can even  handle a small 2 hp. outboard  motor.  Easy-to-follow Ply Plans for  this versatile little boat are  published by the Council of  the Forest Industries of B.C.  and are available through lumber dealers everywhere.  Marine grade PMBC Exterior fir plyiwood is recommended for the hull planking because the interior plies are all  solid, and the surfaces are  smooth and sound. The other  4x8 sheet of plywood you  will need can be Good Two  Sides of Good/Solid grade for.  greater, economy., All plywood  stamped PMBC Exterior is  bonded with 100% waterproof  glue.  You will also need 14 pieces  of lumber for the keel, transom, chines and framing; and  a few gross of corrosion-resistant wood screws. All measurements, materials, and construction techniques are given in  the Ply Plan.   s  Annual preparation and  maintenance is part of the  Super Sabot game. Often only  one or two coats of marine  enamel are used for an attractive and1 inexpensive finish.  If you want top performance  you may want to have your4  sail made by a qualified sjail  maker, but if you do not plan  serious lacing, the Ply Plan  includes directions for _ homemade sail that can be sewn  from eight yards of factor^  grade cotton or Dacron.  The original design for the  Sabot appeared in ',11937. Many  variations have appeared since  then. -  if.'*. '��  ,-??t*m*  Sewer fund grant plans awaited  Municipal officials of the Regional District, Gibsons and Sechelt are awaiting further information concerning the government's plan to offer financial assistance with their sewer financing.  The announcement was made  last week and it is expected}  that the funds provided will  be of great assistance in helping  the financing of present systems and those planned, shortly in the Sunshine Coast area.  , Gibsons new and expanding  system will benefit from this  assistance. Sechelt is tied in  with a proposal system to cover a wide area from Selma  Park to West Sechelt as part of  a Regional District board, move  for the future. r  The purpose of this bill is to  grant significant financial assistance to the municipalities  and Regional districts to help  meet the rapidly rising costs  and increasing, demands -0*r  more sophisticated sewerage N  facilities. Unlike the present  Municipal Treatment Plant Assistance Act enacted under the  , previous administration, which  this bill replaces, significant  amounts of money will be  granted. For example in 1973  less than $8,000 was paid out  .while-under, the new bill it isi  expected1 that payments will be  in the order of $4,000,000.  While it is not possible at  this time to forecast the total  demand for sewerage facilities  in the future, the grant formula in this bill will result in  an increasing provincial contribution as new1 facilities are  constructed. '  This bill provides for an annual grant calculated as 75%  of the amount by which the  annual debt .charges for sewei*  Fire Alarm Procedure  ALSO INHALATOR  To place a Call at Gibsons OR Area covered by the  Gibsons Fire Protection District:  1.

While  the  three  mill formula is used to calculate the grant the municipalities will not necessarily levy  a mill rate but will continue^  to raise all or part of their  sewer requirements by frontage taxes and user charges.  The debt to ibe included for  the determination of the grant  will be the debt related to  provision of sewage treatment  and disposal facilities and such  gathering facilities as are certified by the inspector of municipalities.  The intention is that the  treatment facilities, main  trunks and gathering works be  included in each case whereas  the internal lateral systems of  a subdivision or area would;  not be included. The inspector*  of municipalities is given discretion to determine in each  individual case which facilities are included in the gathering system for purposes of calculating the grant.  Unlike the previous bill debt  changes on existing as well a��  future debt are included for  purposes of the formula.s The  Act becomes, effective as of  Jan. 1, 1(974.
